joining forces with the Gaelic Irish rebels in the Confederacy.65 Of course, Coote was not the only perpetrator of anti-Irish violence. In the 1650s, additional examinants also told the Cromwellian High Court of Justice of the ‘generall Murder’ of Catholics at Island Magee and Carrickfergus in early 1642. One examinant reported that ‘they and the rest of the Irish were forced to shelter themselves in houses and that they were taken out and murthered but how or by whom he cannot declare’.66 Several other possible witnesses were also questioned about ‘the murther Comitted

They ministered to the East India Company’s many Gaelic-speaking Irish soldiers; set about introducing a reconstructed parochial system in India which was, in part, modelled along post-emancipation Irish lines, through the building of churches and other ecclesiastical infrastructure; and promoted the education of

nationalism as an unbroken historical legacy. One early variant is that of ‘settler nationalism’ (Keatinge 1978: 24). The Williamite conquest of 1690 and 1691 had defeated the Jacobite coalition of Old English and Gaelic Irish and, through the Penal Laws, had established a Protestant ‘ascendancy’ in Ireland. Membership of that ascendancy, however, was restricted to those within the Established or Anglican Church. This excluded both the vast bulk of the Irish population that remained loyal to the Church headquartered in Rome as well as religious ‘dissenters’ in the non

It would also seem that the majority of Irish people living in England were ‘Anglo-Irish’, rather than Gaelic Irish. Towns of origin are only rarely identifiable for the Irish people included in our main sources, but those that are known were mainly within areas of stronger English rule. John de Swerdes, taxed in Hereford throughout the early 1440s, was presumably from Swords, near Dublin, while three Waterford

As Knapp notes, the complex responses of the situation in Ireland ‘reveal a tender affection for the island, while at the same time calling for a brutal response to the Gaelic-Irish powers’. 32 These

establishment of a new social practice that would have hitherto been unknown in Gaelic Ireland. 28 The most prominent house on the street is a three-storey house with a high gable-end facing the viewer. The sides of the gable-end are decorated with crow-stepping, a form of architectural embellishment very much associated with Scottish building design in the period, which can be seen in a number of buildings in Ulster and even in the midlands. 29 In the drawing, the ground floor level of the house appears to have been
